Rick's sub

Caught this trophy on Wednesday, weighed on OEX certified scale in Pt. Loma at 52# even. Tapered out at 49 1/2", no tape shot, but I guess a certified weight will be just fine.

Fantastic job Rick. Very glad you made the decision to post this photo as many of us did not get to see this BEAST in person. Congrats!

Congrats Rick. That thing looks like it could eat 10# of squid in 5 minutes.

Rick, you are now in an elite club that few others can boast about. You almost doubled the points for a typical yellowtail with that great catch. Way to hang in there on Wednesday.

"The one"...

Rick, I would trade all of my La Jolla Yellowtail for "The one" right there. I guess my threat with the Halibut bat worked .
